The company received the seeds from a home collection of orange and yellow oxheart tomato seeds sent by an American woman. One of the plants grown from the seeds produced a white tomato, which was most likely a result of a genetic mutation. After several years of selection, this variety was introduced to the public under the name of Great White.
